Money is one of those areas of life where we could possibly better educate young people. Teach us less about the Pythagorean theorem in school and more about taxes, please.

Anyway. If you feel that your understanding of the money talk is insufficient (so do I!) And want to improve your financial literacy, there are a bunch of books out there that can help.

I’ve put together a list of useful reading on money, saving, and investing so we can all work on improving the way we run our bank accounts a bit. Here is a list of silver pounds that are worth the investment (especially near taxes).
